Richmond Tea Party Huge Success!

Thousands Attend TEA Party

Thousands Attend TEA Party

A large crowd estimated at over 5,000 braved the cold and rain to attend a TEA (Taxed Enough Already) party near the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Richmond on tax day, April 15. Speakers revved up the crowd and frequent chants of “USA, USA” and “Vote them out, Vote them out” spontaneously erupted from the fired up crowd.

An expected anti-protest never materialized.

The protesters ranged from professionals in business attire to rockers and bikers with long hair, tattoos and multiple piercings. All races and nationalities united in a peaceful protest to send a unified message to Washington: Stop wasting our money.

The speakers were totally non partisan as were most of the signs, although a few signs directed their anger and disappointment towards Obama.

Millions of protesters around the country attended similar rallies. There was news coverage from local, national and world news agencies in attendance at many of the events. Left wing news outlets such as MSNBC and CNN unsuccessfully attempted to marginalize the impact of the Tea parties and used derogatory words like “teabaggers” to denigrate the sincere beliefs of millions of non-partisan Americans as part of the overt left wing bias now expected from these outlets. Fox News saw their ratings soar due to the bias coverage of their competition.

The overwhelming message carried away from the Tea Parties was this is just the beginning.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
